How did your fitness
journey begin?

I was fat as a young child and became skinny by eighth grade. I always wanted to go to the gym to get stronger and live healthier, but my parents made me wait until I matured more. Thinking about lifting weights was exciting, and I loved the idea of bodybuilding.

When I turned 15 years old, my parents allowed me to start lifting. Until then, my mind was focused on big guys that I saw in movies and on TV. When I started working out, I felt fulfilled. That feeling still exists today and keeps me on track.

What workout regimen delivered
the best results?

I focus on compound movements with heavy weights and high intensity. When I want to burn the muscle even further, I include dropsets and rest-pause sets in my training routine. I find them very effective to build muscle.

How did your passion for fitness emerge?

I always thought muscular men were cool. Your body is what you wear. Take care of it and it will take care of you.

What or who motivated you?

My motivation comes from myself, my ideas, and my thoughts. Bodybuilding personalities like Phil Heath, Victor Martinez, Ronnie Coleman, Lazar Angelov, and Ulisses Jr. motivate me too.

Where did you go for inspiration?

If I felt tired or didn't feel like going to the gym, I thought about somebody out there who was training harder than me. That inspired me every time I lost focus.

What are your future fitness plans?

My plans for the future are to work harder and focus more on details so I can get better. I will do anything it takes to get bigger and stronger so I can compete at a professional level. Hopefully, I earn a pro card and work my way up to the biggest pro shows.

Anyone can quit. Quitting is easy. The pain of not trying is the worse pain you can experience. Not having the will and confidence to finish what you started is unacceptable.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ronnie Coleman, Phil Heath, Victor Martinez, Flex Wheeler, Lazar Angelov, and Ulisses Jr. are my favorite bodybuilders.
